The US definition of a hate crime
Possibly interesting to some people reading this, I'm curious how this differs from the UK definition. Interesting that some major stuff doesn't get prosecuted as such, because they're already going to get life imprisonment or execution, and the prosecutor doesn't want to have to prove the hate crime element as well

Texas abortion bill defeated after missing deadline | World news | guardian.co.uk
The bill would have banned abortions in the state after the 20-week gestation mark, limit abortion-inducing drugs and require terminations to be performed in ambulatory surgical centres. Advocates say these and other restrictions in the bill would have also triggered the closure of 37 of the state's 42 abortion clinics.
